The exhibition, prepared together with  the Jihlava Psychiatric Hospital, will introduce visitors to the contrast of psychiatric care yesterday and today, both through historical facts and through the works of important Czech artists and completely unknown amateur authors with experience of mental illness. The works of Milady Schmidtová Čermáková, Jindřich Štyrský and Josef Váchal from the OGV collections in Jihlava will enter into a dialogue with the work of patients created during art therapy or as part of the support process in the ceramics workshop. During the guided tour, PNJ therapists will provide visitors with an insight into the mental state of individual authors at the time of their creation and introduce the possibilities of using creative techniques in psychiatry.

Exhibition ends in 12 days
